LEGO Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary: Updated and Expanded

Earlier today, an image of the new LEGO Star Wars Sandcrawler (75059) was presumably found in the new LEGO Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary: Updated and Expanded. The previous version of the book was released in 2009 and this updated Dictionary will have 48 additional pages to include all the sets that have been released in the past 5 five years such as last year’s Ewok Village (10236), the new Microfighters sets from this year, and the Sandrawler as mentioned above.

The book also has updated their “Beyond the Bricks” chapter where it behind-the-scenes on how the sets are made by the designers. As with many other LEGO books by DK, there will also be an exclusive minifigure included. It hasn’t been revealed of who it will be. DK has noted they will reveal who it will be very soon. It has been rumored that it will be another variant of Luke Skywalker. If you’re a fan of the previous LEGO Star Wars Visual Dictionary, you’ll surely be a fan of this version as well. Amazon is currently taking pre-orders for the book and it will be available in May.

Each of these characters gets two pages dedicated to them filled with random facts and tidbids.

The guide also mentions some of the other Master Builder of Bricksburg and their skills like the highly-popular popular Green Lantern and Johnny Thunder. Like I’ve mentioned before, the book also shows details of the three new Movie sets that will be released in the near future, Emmet’s Constructo-Mech (70814), Super Secret Police Dropship (70815), and Benny’s Spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP! (70816). At the end of the book, it goes behind the scenes with Matthew Ashton, Vice President of Design for Playthemes and Intellectual Properties at The LEGO Group and it shows how the designers came up with the … Continue
